Chris Has Been Fantastic – Danny Simpson

Danny Simpson is no doubt enjoying his short time so far, at Newcastle and has come out today in praise of Newcastle coach Chris Hughton.


Danny Simpson – Chris has been just fantastic

Simpson told the Evening Chronicle:

“I have only known Chris for a little while.” “But since I’ve been here, he’s been fantastic.”

“He’s very professional and puts on good sessions.” “I’ve really taken to him and if he gets the award he deserves it.”

Danny is not too concerned about our league placing so early in the season, providing the lads can continue with their excellent start to the season. Currently we’re 3rd top on goal difference, behind Cardiff and Middlesbrough.

Simpson continued:

“We can’t worry about anybody else.” “We can only worry about our own performances.”

“At the minute we are doing that.” “If we keep performing like that and putting the same effort in we’ll keep picking up the points.”

“When it’s like this you can’t wait for the next game.” “Everybody is feeling good and just looking ahead to Leicester City now at St James’.”

We need as many wins as we can get this season, if we are in deed to get promoted and as we found out last year draws don’t do too much for you.

So it’s one game at a time, and one win at a time, and we hope we can keep going against Leicester on Monday night.

And whatever happens, or doesn’t happen with the Newcastle sale over the weekend, Chris must be in charge for Monday night’s game against a good Leicester City side.

Comments welcome.

    This lad says a lot of positives and I’ll bet Sralex has put him on his best behaviour.

    …wish Ed would spread his articles throughout the day at more even intervals. There’d be far more comments per story, and less frequent blog-hopping. Guess he only has specific ‘windows’ to post them.

    …and I’m not moaning before the Ed Mafia lynch me.

    Hope he can raise his game here.With proper manager, I think he can be the one of the best right back in country. However still long way to go.

    He is a positive lad this Simpson fella. Praise must be awarded to Chris Hughton for his fantastic job so far. Although we should not get too carried away as we have to remember the opposition is much weaker compared to the Premiership. THIS LEAGUE MAKES EVERYONE IN OUR TEAM LOOK GOOD!!

    if or when a manager comes in, & if or when we get promoted i hope the manager shakes Chris’s hand and reminds him he played a major part in it because if it wasn’t for Chris we could be a long ways back, and when you have the likes of Ashley saying that Kinnear will always have a job at Newcastle well Chris deserves it more in face out of the 2 hes the only one that does, if a new manager arrives let have a blog to thank Chris as we owe it to him.

    Rodz – Why don’t you email Ed and suggest it, maybe Ed could have a poll about how many articles he does (more, less, just right etc). Maybe he could have a poll about how many ads he has on the site, although i think we all know how we’d vote on that 1! 🙂
